Week 12: 2015

This week the guys built a potato gun, we set things on fire, and we visited the niece whose appendix burst over the weekend. There was also a hoof trimmer appointment for Shuga, a vet appointment for all the horses at the farm, and other stuff that I'm not thinking of at the moment. Busy, busy.

Week 9: 2015

Late again! Oops. But at least I'm remembering to post, right?

My focus in March is side light. This doesn't necessarily mean the subject is lit from the side, but that the light comes from the side of the camera. I've never consciously used this kind of light, but I've been finding it a lot easier than low light. 3 out of 4 pictures in this post follow this light study, which I'm excited about.

The last week and a half-ish has been a little bit busy. Shuga got sick and needed a little extra care, I got food poisoning shortly after, and normal life just kept going on regardless. The good news is that both I and my horse appear to have recovered at this point. I hope that we'll be able to be back in the saddle again soon.

Shuga's vet exam

Cinnamon continues her progress toward becoming a "dog", as puppies don't really count. We still have some big training issues to work through, but I feel like she's starting to make sense of what's expected of her. She's definitely growing on me as she sheds more and more of that annoying puppy thing.

I'm still very surprised that pictures of my wiggliest child are the ones that turn out the best every week. This one I fell in love with, though:

This last picture is my absolute favorite of the week. She was screeching like a pterodactyl for no reason that I could discern. Though, honestly, do you really need a reason when you're 3?
